PILTZ is a family business, founded as a crafts enterprise
in 1863 at Heidenheim an der Brenz, Southern
Around 1900 the tool production was started. Whereas
optical and fine-mechanical industries ranked
among the main customers of high-precision thread
and gear cutting tools in the past, nowadays there
are the automotive suppliers. Today the parts for packaging
machines are manufactured as well in this
PILTZ own fabrication.
In 1975 Alexander Piltz, fourth generation of the family,
started the development and production of
sachet machines as a second business line. Several
hundred machines have been delivered worldwide
to date, characterized by high productivity, quality,
sturdiness and long lifetime.
PILTZ Maschinen GmbH Dresden was founded in
2005 as a technical centre. For many decades the
area of Dresden is a worldwide known centre of
packaging machines manufacturing. Today all packaging
machine activities of PILTZ are concentrated
in Dresden. The team can fall back on many years of
application experience. Early 2011 PILTZ Maschinen
GmbH moved to new premises in Dresden.
